    Re: Wet weather gear

     I agree c.j.b.  Inside a computer is a good place to dry things.

    For those that need some clarification, apart from the power supply, the rest of the internals of a computer are a combination of 5 and 12 volt busses.  The humidity caused by the wet gear is not that great for the computer internals, but with the amount of airflow happening, it doesn't stay in there too long and the current life cycle of a computer will be at an end before any corrosion started to occur anyway.  It is not as if you are putting your salty swimming gear in there.

    Server rooms are the best for drying gear out, with there constant temps and extremely low humidity, whisks water out of your clothes in no time.

     if ya don't like the gloves in the comp idea,  you might not like me drying clothes using the oven then.

    30 minutes at 180 degrees. Chop up some mushrooms, onions and garlic and place in a pan on a low heat.  Add microwaved terrier to taste then serve. LMAO Devil

    It does work very well, until someone decides its also good for drying out their Speedos... -_-

    We have an inflatable Santa who is blowing a fairly constant stream of air out of his... err... nether region. The gloves are drying quite nicely thanks.

    Of course Santa also farts on a regular basis.

    I've nicknamed him "Keith". I wonder what Mr Grumpy would think, maybe I should ask. Big Smile
